G5 Entertainment Announces Virtual City for PC

Dec. 15, 2009 - G5 Entertainment, known for its best-selling PC franchises Supermarket Mania, Mahjongg Artifacts and Stand O'Food, today announced Virtual City for PC.

In Virtual City, players build and develop the city of their dreams, whether suburban utopia or bustling metropolis. Virtual City players begin by choosing from dozens of residential homes and industrial buildings, and the possibilities from there are limitless. As their cities grow, players can produce and transport goods, create mass-transit systems, and entertain their city's residents with parks, cinemas, stadiums and events. In order to keep the city safe and its citizens happy and healthy, basic services like health care, public safety, waste collection and recycling must be planned and administered.

Virtual City combines a robust city-building simulation with intuitive, easy to understand controls. First-time players will have no trouble learning how to play, while more experienced gamers will find enough depthand variation to keep them enthralled for hours.

As players construct their cities, they must keep the happiness of their citizens in mind.  Virtual City cities must be guided through economic downturns, population crisis and the consequences of natural disasters. All the while, a careful balance of Income, Environment, Population and Happiness must be achieved in order to maintain a content citizenry.

Additional Virtual City features include:

• 50 challenging levels in five states: Colorado, California, Michigan, Montana, New York

• 18 distinct mission scenarios

• Free-play mode in five large sandbox maps

• More than 50 types of buildings, with upgrades available

• 25 types of goods to transport

• Seven production chains to master

• 16 achievements to earn

Virtual City is available exclusively from the G5 Entertainment Web site at http://g5e.com. A one-hour trial is available for free, and for a limited time only, players can convert to the full version for only $14.99.

Gamers can also become a fan of G5 Entertainment Games on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/g5games, where they will receive the latest news on Virtual City and future G5 Entertainment games.
